Shagufta's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to hire a seamstress and buy a sewing machine for her, so she can deliver clothes on time.

Shagufta's story

Shagufta is a 46-year old, married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of two sons. Her husband's income proved insufficient to fulfill all household expenses. Now her children started to going high school;

To meet household expenses; she started a seamstress services in her community but unable to sew clothes in the due time. She is alone with lot of burden of work. She wants to appoint another tailor and an additional machine as well. In this way; she can easily fulfill her task on due time.

This is the reason Shagufta contacted with Kiva's field partner BRAC Pakistan and requested for a Kiva loan. With the help of loan; she will buy a new professional sewing machine and can hire a staff so she can generate some better revenue.

Shagufta is very thankful to Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
